Fort Lauderdale, Florida Golf Community
Fort Lauderdale Country Club in 2017 is celebrating it’s 90th anniversary and is the oldest private country club in Broward County.
With premier conditions over 36 holes Fort Lauderdale Country Club members enjoy playing golf surrounded by vistas and nature rather than houses.
On both courses members play within countless species of indigenous trees and colorful beds of flowers, with a few water hazards to navigate around or over.
Fort Lauderdale Country Club is a wonderful club for members to enjoy Florida’s perfect outdoor climate, to play golf, make friends, enjoy casual and formal dining while making memories to last a lifetime.
The club provides a busy golf tournament schedule to suit everyone’s tastes and skill levels. While an excellent player to course ration makes finding time to play a breeze. Their activities for women golfers include numerous golf events during the winter, together with welcoming associations for both beginners and seasoned players for 9 holes or full course play. The women’s program is one of the largest in the area.
Multiple short-game practice areas feature every type of rough you might experience on the courses, multiple bunkers, and a challenging putting green. A double-ended driving range with both grass and the latest all weather surfaces allow member’s options regardless of weather.
Our courses have the very best drainage and allow members to be out playing golf without restrictions before other local courses are considering cart path only play. For example, both courses resumed full play after Hurricane Irma in 2017 within 2 weeks, and one course was available even sooner.
The North course plays at nearly 7000 yards, and the South course is 200 yards shorter playing a little more “links” style. Their website has narrated hole flyovers to truly get a feel for the designs and challenges.
Both courses provide four wide-ranging sets of tees making them very enjoyable for beginners and experts, young and old.
The two courses and membership levels mean members can find times to play very easily. Members quickly learn that they often can “just turn up” and will play.
Full service Pro shop and multiple golf pros offer a wide range of services, including individual and group clinics lessons from all the accredited PGA staff.
The club is a private Equity club and has programs for members to suit different types of needs such as seasonal programs.
When not golfing, members enjoy formal and casual dining choices overlooking the challenging 9th hole with a layup or go for it decision.
Conveniently located between Fort Lauderdale and Plantation, the club is within 6 miles of the beach and draws members from all neighboring areas as well as further afield.
A number of LPGA pros choose Fort Lauderdale Country Club as the practice home with it’s tour-like consistent conditions.
Maybe the premier private country club in the area, with certainly the easiest tee time availability and outstanding women’s programs, it certainly should be a choice to explore. Just contact them for a welcoming visit.
